Rémy Cabella (born 8 March 1990) is a French professional footballer who plays for Ligue 1 club Saint-Étienne, on loan from Marseille, and the France national team. He plays as an attacking midfielder and has been described as a fast, agile and creative offensive midfielder who can play on the wing or behind a striker.
Cabella was born in Ajaccio, Corsica, to an Italian father and a Corsican mother. He started his youth career at local club Gazélec Ajaccio before joining Montpellier's academy at the age of 14, winning the 2009 Coupe Gambardella with their under-19 team.
Cabella signed a three-year professional contract with Montpellier in July 2009. He injured the cruciate ligament in his right knee during training in September and was ruled out for the season.
Cabella signed a two-year extension to his contract in January 2012, which would keep him at the club til 2016. In a 1–0 win over Brest on 4 February 2012, Cabella struck a volley from a cross that struck the back of his teammate Geoffrey Dernis and went into the opposition's net for a goal. Cabella was credited with the assist. On 11 February 2012, in a 3–0 victory over AC Ajaccio, Cabella scored with a right-footed shot across Ajaccio's goalkeeper after being put away by Olivier Giroud. On 20 May 2012, Montpellier won the league title for the first time in its history.
In May 2014, Cabella announced his intention to leave the club in the summer.
On 13 July 2014, Cabella signed for Premier League club Newcastle United on a six-year deal, for a reported £8 million transfer fee. He made his competitive debut on 17 August as Newcastle began the season with a 2–0 defeat at home to Manchester City, playing the full 90 minutes. Cabella's first Newcastle goal came on 31 January 2015, opening a 3–0 win away at Hull City. He was subsequently awarded Player of the Month for January by Newcastle fans. During his time with Newcastle, Cabella made 34 appearances in all competitions, scoring just one goal.
On 19 August 2015, Cabella returned to France, signing with Ligue 1 side Marseille on a season-long loan as part of a deal that saw Florian Thauvin transfer to Newcastle. He made his club debut on 23 August 2015, starting in the 6–0 Ligue 1 home victory over Troyes. On 3 December 2015, Cabella scored his first goal for Marseille in a 1–0 win over Rennes in a Ligue 1 match before scoring one goal again 3 days later in a 2–2 draw with Montpellier in another Ligue 1 match.
Although Cabella's loan spell at Marseille had ended, he spent the pre-season with the French club, appearing in some friendly matches. On 11 August 2016, Newcastle announced that Cabella's loan switch to Marseille had become permanent ahead of the 2016-2017 season.
Loan to Saint-Étienne
Between 2010 and 2012, Cabella played seventeen times for the France national under-21 football team, scoring four goals.
As well as the French national side, Cabella also qualifies for the non-FIFA affiliated team of Corsica. Cabella made his Corsican début in 2011 against Bulgaria. He was again called up to the Squadra Corsa in 2016, while at Marseille, to face the Basque Country. Cabella started the match, playing the full 90 minutes.
Cabella was named on the stand-by list for France's 2014 FIFA World Cup squad. He made his international debut coming on as an 80th-minute substitute for Yohan Cabaye in a 4–0 friendly match win over Norway on 28 May 2014 at the Stade de France. On 6 June, Cabella replaced the injured Franck Ribéry on France's 2014 World Cup squad. France reached the quarter-finals, although Cabella did not enter the field of play.
